Our walking tour guide recommended this place as an option to see some free flamenco and it did not disappoint. Just away from the busy part of the old town it was refreshingly full of a mixed crowd including lots of locals, tourists, families etc....More

The place is nicely nestled in the narrow alleys of the sleepy town of Seville. We landed at this place after a walking tour tracing the evolution of Flamenco dance in Seville with "Heart of Sevilla" tours. The place is popular for live Flamenco singing...More

I mean I don't know what I expected. Free flamenco always sounds appealing. Do not be swayed dear friends. The dancing is good. When they are indeed dancing. However the long intervals between both music and dance make the experience somewhat lackluster. To conclude with...More

I personally liked the place and the free Flamenco performance very much. As mentioned in the title it's better to go the place at about 20:00 in order to find a seat which has a good view to the stage. Also expect a queue of...More

The quality of the artists has really shrunk to a very low quality, we were very disappointed yesterday (maybe because it's off season?)

Yes, it is a fun place, nice to have a beer and hang out. Good mixture of locals and foreigners. However if you want to go to a flamenco show I would go to Casa de la memoria, very clOse to la carboneria. Close by in plaza Santa maria la Blanca you have a nice fried fish freiduria and my fav Japanese restaurant Kaede

I have never been to Seville and Granada and I am reading so many wonderful things to see. Not knowing the physical layout of the cities, I don't know the best way to organize our itinerary so that we are seeing things in a sensible way from a logistics standpoint. We've got three nights two full days in each city. Any suggestions on what is the best way to set up our itinerary?

Will La Carboneria & other bars be open during Semana Santa? I wonder what happens to the Sevilla nightlife with all the processions going on during Wednesday and Thursday nights?
